  • Microphone doesn't work

    My microphone in Dota 2 does not seem to work properly.

    In Steam / Skype / Teamspeak it works perfectly fine. In Dota 2, the mic seems to stop working after I have used it once. So if I press the 'TAB' button to talk, it will work, but as soon as I let go of 'TAB', and press it again, it won't transmit anything and will show the muted icon. Open mic does sort of the same thing. As soon as I barely talk, it will just cut out entirely.

    Steam voice still works consistently throughout playing so it seems to be happening only with Dota 2.

    I am on Mavericks.

        Hey, same here. Mic works for 30 seconds to sometimes 15 minutes, but when it stops working I have to restart my game for it to work again.

        OS X 10.9 can give more info if needed.


        I'd like this to get fixed, been happening since Dota came out for Mac!

            same thing here. it usually cuts out around the 15 minute mark, sometimes it doesn't work from the start.
